Kings of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men
King Viserys III
“Fire and Blood”
House Targaryen is a noble family of Valyrian descent that escaped the Doom. They lived for centuries on the island of Dragonstone until Aegon the Conqueror and his sisters rode their dragons in their conquest of the Seven Kingdoms.
House Targaryen ruled as the kings on the Iron Throne and as the Great House of the crownlands for nearly 300 years, until their ouster in Robert’s Rebellion, which they call the War of the Usurper. Their seats were the Red Keep in the capital city of King’s Landing, the castle of Dragonstone, and the summer residence of Summerhall.
